• The Facility did not have a policy and rate structure in place for charging services to residents.
FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
CHARGES FOR SERVICES POLICY AND RATE STRUCTURE NOT ESTABLISHED
The Facility did not have a policy and rate structure in place for charging services to residents as required by the Sexually Violent Persons Commitment Act (725 ILCS 207/90). Currently, residents are not required to pay for services even if they have access to assets to do so. (Finding 2, Page 10).
The auditors recommended the Facility continue to work with the Department of Human Services Central Office to formally document a policy on charging residents for services and a corresponding rate structure to comply with the Sexually Violent Persons Commitment Act.
Officials accepted the finding and recommendation and stated they will continue to work with the Department to create a rate structure.
The remaining findings concerned local funds and hiring policies. We will review progress toward implementing all recommendations in our next examination.
The auditors conducted a limited scope compliance examination of the School as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act. The auditors stated that the Facility complied, in all material respects, with the compliance requirements.
The auditors also performed certain procedures with respect to the accounting records of the Facility to assist with the financial audit of the entire Department. Financial statements for the Department will be presented in that report.
